LeBron James gestured after scoring against the Celtics on Monday.

NEW ORLEANS – Two days after being dunked on by LeBron James during the Heat’s 105-103 win over the Celtics, Jason Terry had little response Wednesday as James continued to chide him.

Terry realizes that he was the latest victim of a vicious dunk that spread across YouTube and had reaction littered on Twitter.

James added a harsh synopsis of the dunk.

“It was one of my better ones,” he told reporters in Miami. “And the fact that it happened to J.T. made it even that much sweeter. Because I think we all know what J.T. talks, and he talks too much sometimes and I’m glad it happened to him.”

In the second quarter Monday, James soared over Terry for a dunk and James then stood over Terry, glared and was called for a technical foul. The two have a feud going back to the 2011 NBA Finals when Terry’s Dallas Mavericks defeated James’ Heat in six games.

Terry was approached about James’ comments before a shootaround on Wednesday.

“I’m not even commenting. No comment. Zero. I have none. A basketball play,” Terry said. “My reaction was when the fans were cheering and I went up and knocked down the technical. That’s a great reaction. Wasn’t the first, won’t be the last.”
